It was probably the most memorable moment of my life. But I didn't always look at it like that. In the beginning, I didn't want to do it. I was too young and it seemed too big of an event for me to comprehend. My whole family was in on it, and they all had mixed opinions. I was lost. I wasn't sure if I did want to do it, or if I didn't. It, was when I moved to Paris. The reason we had the idea of moving to the big city in France was because my dad was offered a new job there. He and my mom both wanted to move, because it opened up a whole new world to them, full of traveling, history, and good times. So my dad took the job, he just wanted to make sure us kids were cool with it. So we all sat down at the dinner table and started talking about the pros and cons, which some of them I didn't really get, but I pretended I understood anyway. As soon as my brother heard the words "new" and "computer", he was in. It was just my sister and me that needed to give the OK, and everyone was trying to convince us. I was starting to get stressed, because I didn't know what to do, but hey. At least we were heading out to Mickey D's later. Eventually we all were ok with it, and we started telling all of our friends. Everyone said, "That's neat!" and "You're lucky!" but I didn't think so. I would have to move away from my house, my neighborhood, my school, and most importantly, my friends. When time came around (about June) we started packing everything up and moving out. I remember when we were driving away from our neighborhood to the airport I looked out the back window and waved goodbye to the place I had called home for the past 5 years. When we did arrive in Paris, I finally realized how cool and exciting it was going to be. You can walk everywhere in that huge foreign city. A five-minute walk could take you to the grocery store, school, park, shopping mall, your friend's house, and more. Another neat thing about living in Europe was that a lot of really interesting countries and cities were all close by (more than a five-minute walk). We could go to Italy, Spain, Ireland, England, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, and Germany. It really opened my eyes to a world other than America with different cultures, architecture, religions, and ways of life. It definitely was an awesome three years, and I will not forget it. I saw more things in just a couple of years than some people have seen in a lifetime. I mean, who knew there were so many castles in Europe? I see now that I was really lucky and how much of an ignorant little boy I was. This is a moment of truth that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
